Town of Denmark

Denmark you’ll fall in love with Denmark – where towering tall trees meet the ocean.

It has a relaxed village atmosphere, romantic timber milling history and incredible coastal scenery.

Just 45 minutes drive west of Albany on the southern coast, Denmark stands on spectacular Wilson Inlet and boasts glorious swimming, surfing and fishing beaches.

Named after naval surgeon Dr Alexander Denmark, it became a colonial settlement in 1826 and thrived as a logging town.

Your first stop should be one of the most beautiful places in Denmark – William Bay.

In the midst of this white sandy beach stands Greens Pool, a sheltered natural lagoon with glittering emerald water ideal for snorkelling.

Stroll east to Elephant Rocks, huge elephant-like granite boulders standing in picture-perfect contrast to the vibrant blue sky and sea-green water.

The lush green hills, limestone headlands, towering trees and giant boulders have attracted a host of artists who are inspired by the stunning nature.

Walk among giant karri trees at nearby Tree Top Walk, indulge in top drops from rustic wineries or treat yourself to a tasting tour of the bramble, blueberry and herb farms or the cheese and toffee factories.

In town visit the historic fire station, old butter factory, Denmark’s first school, and the popular drinking hole the Denmark Hotel.

Explore the town’s maze, alpaca stud, animal farm and sandalwood factory or take a whale-watching tour.

Water-lovers can hire canoes, motorboats, paddleboats or aqua bikes and mess around on the river.

Throw in a line for herring, salmon and bream at Lights Beach or just kick back and watch the waves crashing over the rocks at Wilson Head and Lions Lookout.

Wherever you stay, end your day with a glass of local red under a clear night sky scattered with thousands of sparkling stars.
